"the washington post" suggested yesterday that you present an obstacle to the passage of gun- control legislation. obviously, you do in a sense. but i am wondering if sort of standard -- the standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation. that is why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, will be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were talking about when they wrote the article, but i will strongly defend the press to write and print what they want, accurate or otherwise. but the fact is -- and i am not suggesting whether this was accurate or not -- but i will point out that i have a track record of getting legislation passed. some will say that nothi

up what our first read has put out today, talking about president obama's announcement, saying bottom line, obama is going to go as big as he can go, realizing there's little political downside, at least in the short term. chris, your reaction to that? is there really no downside to going straight for this as strongly as he can, fresh out of the gate and off the heels of the gun task force of the vice president's suggestions? >> well, obviously it's going to depend on what the president proposes but i think you've seen from the polls and i think you've seen the reaction from the country that something needs to be done. this is not something that's going to be solved with one simple measure. i think the president and his team have decided that a more comprehensive, bold approach is the smart thing to do. part that's disappointing to me is in this entire debate that kind of erupted obviously after the newtown shootings, is you've not heard anything from the republicans in terms of what they would be willing to even consider. would they consider magazines, would they consider any type of
. fashion and the first lady is what we're talking about. we got a sneak peek at what michelle obama will be wearing for tomorrow's big day. she's going to show off those famous arms. we know she has the great new hairstyle with the bangs. she's going to look great. >>> also coming up, how about a five-pound meal for your sunday brunch? look at that. whoo! we'll meet one woman who is up to the challenge coming up in "fixation." a little teaser for your sunday brunch. >>> but first we are learning more about the man accused of carrying out that fake girlfriend hoax on football star manti te'o. >> while te'o tries to salvage his dignity and hopes of an nfl career, the spotlight is turning to the man te'o accuses of carrying out the charade that lasted for years and matt gutman is where he is training. >> reporter: good morning, and now to create this imaginary world around manti te'o's fake girlfriend, the prankster enlisted family members, even his 9-year-old sister. now, we don't know what the motivation for all of this is but we do know what the inspiration may have been, his own r
committee. you're talking about the debt ceiling debate. wall street journal says that president obama has escalated the fight. let me show you a little of what he said. [video clip] >> if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners, food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down loose nuclear materials would not get their paychecks, investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is a safe bet. markets could go haywire. interest rates would spike for anyone who borrows money. every homeowner with a mortgage, every student with a college loan, every small business owner who wants to grow. host: your reaction? guest: first, thanks for having me on the show, greta. i have owned the business over 20 years as an entrepreneur, have been looking at budgets for over 30 years. even now, as a businessman who has had a season of public- service, i have 150 employees in virginia. so this i
as this time whether he should criticize or concern the road is going on with obama, criticizing, talk to the supreme court what congress said. that same situation. >> why is that? why is that iraq i think in part actually this just that to close. it has come up wraparound the actual polarization. i think the one thing we can take away from this whole situation is that bullies when. as much as we believe. nothing more. basically he can call people up and humiliate them and bash them, and it does manage you intimidate governments and leaders radical institutions. i think that is a problem. we all feel what could happen. of the -- of 81 should have called what happened a coup. it was, but the fact that no one raised the question of what this meant for their respective the letter. it is not the spirit of the constitution. it was very sad. worse, and this is a government that is very good. always staying a few -- shades of gray, and not the novel, but consistently named supreme court justices violating procedures, and consistently now -- if it comes to an election let me venture a guess, t
talked with president obama about this. i know he's strongly committed to real immigration reform. would like to see the dream act passed. i'd like to see a number of other things and we'll work on it. one of your fellow graduates of georgetown, senator durbin, deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he's done in the dream act. he'll be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" had a piece yesterday suggesting that you represented perhaps an obstacle to the passage of gun control legislation. i'm wondering -- obviously you do in a sense. but i'm wondering if sort of standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation and that's why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, is going to be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were writing about when i read the article, but i will strongly defend the press right to print anything they want, accurate or otherwise, but the fact is -- i'm not suggesting whether this was accurate or not
not apply to me. ahhhh! >> stephanie: he's talking about the obama administration using executive order to bypass congress so they can't get gun control measures done. >> i'm against having a king. i think having a monarch is what we fought the american revolution over. that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch. i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican president but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment, we'll fight tooth and nail and i promise you there will be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop him from usurping the constitution. >> know what i mean, wink, wink, nudge, nudge dog whistle. here lassie. >> apparently -- >> stephanie: yes. does he not -- the white house knows which stuff is obviously that you can do by executive order and which stuff you can't. they keep putting this information out there. none of the stuff we're talking about has to do with taking your stupid guns. it has to do with, you know, gathering information and that kind of stuff. okay. what are you doing? what are you doing over there? let's go to my ron
the president and mrs. obama looking at bookshelf. they talked about the importance of this day. >> this inauguration, we're going to be -- it's a symbol of how our democracy work and how we peacefully transfer power but it should be an affirmation we're all in this together. >> molly: the vice president and his family participated in the national day of service. they filled care packages for deployed servicemen and women. mr. biden says the troops overseas that we remember them. the area around the washington monument there were opportunities for people that wanted to get involved. they could make cards for foster care children, create a mural, learn how to use recycled materials and more. here is what some of the participants said about the events. >> came all the way from las vegas for the inauguration and a day of service. >> i think it is important because we can take communities back to our community and communities can grow and prosper and pass on all the ideas that we have learned here. >> molly: also participating on the mall, chelsea clinton and delaware attorney gener

's take a listen to president obama in his own words back in february of 2009 talking about iraq. [video clip] >> a candidate for president, i made clear a time line 16 months to carry out the drug them while pledging to consult closely with our military commanders upon taking office to ensure that we preserve the gains we have made and to protect our troops. these consultations are now complete. i have chosen a time line that will remove our combat brigades over the next 18 months. let me say this as plainly as i can -- by august 31, 2010, our combat mission in iraq will end. host: that as president obama back in february, 2009. guest: that is a promise kept this was the centerpiece of his campaign. you can go back to 2003 with his opposition to the war. a promise that week raided was barack obama will work with military commanders on the ground in iraq to end the war safely and responsibly within 16 months and we raided that a promise kept in 2010 as the last combat troops were removed from iraq. this gets back to what we were talking about about presidential power. there were things t
in president obama's second inaugural. i know something she would like you to get involved in. she'll talk to us about that and she'll also talk to us about her mom's health and some other things when she joins us. >>> did you notice mark wahlberg had an interesting date? >> date? i don't know that you want to call it a date. >> i'm just trying to do the tease here. >> somebody on the red carpet. >> he is here now. we'll talk to him about that. also he has a new project we want to talk to him about, russell crowe movie. >>> hoda kotb is up early this morning. >> love hoda. love her. >> yeah. >>> we're standing in front of our weather wall. it's filling in. soon we hope to be able to reveal the title of dan brown's new thriller. if you keep it coming, we'll fill it up and give you that title. use the #danbrown today to fill the screen. by the way, how big is the release of a dan brown thriller? he is ranked, his books, as the most read books in the world, up there with books like the bible. >> the bible? wow! >> every tweet is a dot on that board. some people are starting to talk about flor
. there are a lot of americans out there who own guns who think president obama will want to take them away. >> well, that is true. as we talked about before. we're seeing an incredible swelling not only in the purchasing of guns but in the, in nra membership as well. i think that there is an expected, expectation on the part of the administration that the national rifle association's power is going to be quite, formidable and that they are not going to be able to pass everything in their legislative package, which as you mention is going to be outlined in specifics, soon. it will include, an assault weapons ban. it will include restrictions on magazine clips and high capacity ammunition. that is the kind of thing that will be fought hard by the nra. white house doesn't expect an assault weapons ban to pass but it will include it in its goals because they want to include everything in its goals. i think what they're expecting in the end to find consensus on is more like, i said, consensus and cooperation in the area of background checks and screening, before guns are purchased. maybe the closing of
towards the country's spending limit once again, folks. you know what that means. talking about time to raise the debt ceiling, right? president obama warned he will not enter into another game of brinkmanship as he referred to it over the debt sealing with republicans. >> the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is in fact a safe bet. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. martha: a lot of talk about the president's demeanor at that news conference yesterday. we'll get into that a little bit more coming up but for now does this really come down to an issue of raising the spending limit or defaulting on our credibility as the president has talked about. let's bring in stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on fox business network. so, stuart, you feel the way he is framing this is incorrect? >> ye
if you decided to venture into naughty films. in any event, i digress. and we talk to the guy who blue the lid off the scandal and joins us live. the big new brawl over using kids in politics as both the n.r.a. and president obama use children to help deliver messages today. appropriate? and we'll investigate what's called the case of political correctness on the playground as two six year olds are suspended for playing a game that goes back hundreds of years. ♪ >> fox news alert. earlier in the hour we told you about a controversial new ad from the national rifle association that criticizes president obama for accepting armed protection for his daughters at school. when mr. obama recently questioned the need for police to step up security at schools across the country. earlier, jay carney called that ad repugnant and cowardly. here is some of the ad currently running on the cable network, the sportsman channel. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools, when his kids are protected by armed guards at t
into congress. senator finestein's bill and president obama and joe biden's comments. >> but you can appreciate guns without appreciating magazines that shoot a hundred rounds. you're talking about legislation that clearly talks about person types of weapons, certain types of magazines. . not all guns. let's not distort what the legislation is saying. >> well, in diane finestein's bill, in the summary that i read, you know, she lists handguns that are semi-automatic, which are the majority of handguns that are sold in this country. in her proposed legislation. so we are talking about, you know, the guns that people use on a regular and everyday basis to defend their homes and families. >> well, it hasn't been introduced yet. we don't know what the final bill will say. but are you supporting on saturday, on gun appreciation day, automatic weapons and magazines that go with 30-100 rounds? is that part of appreciation day? >> i believe that right now, any ban on a semiautomatic weapon would not have, you know, changed the outcome of what happened in newtown. it would not have changed the outcome o
president obama has been president is the continual -- a concerted effort to compare himself to president lincoln, a first in his talking about the book that he was reading -- i cannot remember the title of it -- >> king of rivals? caller: now he is taking the inauguration on the lincoln bauble. there is an idea that some callers have made that this president has faced worst consequences or worse situations than previous presidents i think is somewhat absurd. the fact that he is half-black, there is nothing to it. he is the president of united states and is supposed to be president of everybody. unfortunately, i have lost confidence in the politicians in washington, d.c. and i think the people of the united states should continually boat these people out of office on a regular basis until they start doing what they're supposed to do which is represent the people of the united states. we have a democratically elected republic and people need to pull out their history books and find out what that is and realize that when we send them to office, would give them the authority to vote the way
. not at all. >> thanks, lisa. >>> the national rifle association is about to respond to president obama's crackdown on guns, the powerful gun rights lobbying group will join us later in this hour in "the situation room." lots to talk about with david kooen. stay with us. ♪ [ male announcer ] some day, your life will flash before your eyes. make it worth watching. introducing the 2013 lexus ls. an entirely new pursuit. >>> let's continue the conversation in our strategy session. joining us right now, two cnn political contributors. the democratic pollster cornell belcher and republican strategist alex castellanos. the president laid out a very am bishops shous plan to deal with guns. cornell, you're familiar with this issue. can he deliver? >> well, i think he can deliver. if you look poll after poll, this is where the american people are. what happened in connecticut was a conscience jarring for americans. similar to what we saw on 9/11 where the world is not the same. americans are hungry for change. the assault weapons ban, the commonsense registration laws, fixing the loopholes, th
's stop spending. and then of course probably the most important that he will talk about tomorrow, compromise, work together. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. >>> let me bring in the rest of our roundtable here. joe scarborough is here from msnbc's "morning joe." adviser to obama 2012, david axelrod. chief foreign correspondent richard engel is here, safe and sound in studio. richard, it's great to see you in person this morning. "new york times" best-selling author of "team of rivals" doris kearns goodwin. in between awards shows she's joined us. and nbc news special correspondent tom brokaw. welcome to all of you. tom, that's where we tee it up. the president, as he begins a second term, very difficult climate in washington and very real expectations. >> yes. and i was looking at those top three priorities for the american people. and they all fit into his single most difficult task, it seems to me, both conceptually and specifically. in the next couple of years, he only has a couple of years, these are second terms and not four-year terms. you're running right up to the mid
must be fixed. and we must remember when we talk about rights, children have a right to be safe. so i applaud president obama and vice president biden for proactively taking the necessary steps to address this critical issue. it's going to take all of us united, regardless of party affiliation or our differing views on constitutional rights, to stem this tide of violence. more importantly we must take a hard look at funding for mental health services and other services. we must look at sinking technology -- syncing technology to ensure proper and tighter access to firearms. we must place adequate controls on ammunition. bottom line, we must protect our schools, our communities, children and families must be safe. i respectfully ask my colleagues to make this issue of violence a priority and to support our nation's leadership as they work through resolving this challenge which should not be difficult. if we compromise and keep focusing on saving lives. madam chair, i pledge to support you and to support all my other colleagues with the congressional black caucus to make a difficult tas
is speaking before the conference. >>> and when president obama took office four years ago, of course, what was the mood? well, the inauguration, it was jubilant, but going into a second term he's facing a much harder road. atlanta's mayor is joining us to talk about those challenges. >>> i think the main mission of what we're trying to dos in our lab, drag psychology kicking and screaming into the 21st century. >> a wimped of the virtual world. >> we're sort of like the unique alliance of hollywood, the military and academia. >> also a chief combatant in u.s. military's battle against post-traumatic stress disorder. ptsd. >> it's not unique to combat, but for veterans what it's become one of the signature woods of iraq and afghanistan. >> skip rizzo. he first graped headlines back in 2006 with his virtual reality ptsd therapy for vets. today he's getting in front of the problem with strive. my colleague chris lawrence got a first look. >> i want to prepare people to deal with stress better. if that doesn't work out, help them fight through the challenges in the aftermath of stress. >> hi.
, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
